consensus among viewers and pundits that mitt romney shined in denver's debate season opener and the president did not. the new yorker magazine summed it up with a cover cartoon of romney debating an empty chair. the captain "mitt stands alone." campaigns are only as good as their last news cycle, so on to danville, kentucky, and thursday night's battle of the number twos. joining me now are philadelphia mayor michael nutter, a long-time friend of joe biden, and republican party chairman -- a confidant of paul ryan. mayor nutter, stand by with me, and i want to get to the party chairman, and we'll be back with you. mr. chairman, thank you for joining us. i want to talk about the great burden of great expectations. there was a cnn poll, and who is going to win the vice presidential debate? the answer was biden, 35%, ryan, 55%. many many ways this mirrors what happened to the presidential debate? everyone thought president obama would win, so there's great expectations here for ryan. how much of a microscope do you think there will be on him? >> i'm not so sure about that. i me

-checking governor romney after last week's debate. you should know nbc news has not granted either campaign permission to use our news material and immediately requested that the campaign refrain from using nbc news material in this and future advertisements. the obama commercial uses only a short clip from a truth squad report that, in fact, pointed out exaggerations and/or misstatements that both candidates made during the debate. just want to make that clear. >>> mitt romney has accused the president of failure of leadership. also failure of leadership that's emboldened iran and other u.s. adversaries abroad in the middle east and north africa. >> this president's policies haven't been equal to our best examples of world leadership. nowhere is this more evident than in the middle east. i want to be very clear. the blame for the murder of our people in libya and the attacks on our embassies in other countries lies solely with those who carried them out. no one else. but it is our responsibility and the responsibility of the president to use america's greatest power to shape history, not t
